Five films on Canadian life in days gone by. City of Gold: This classic, award-winnig film relays the frenzy of the Klondike gold rush and shows Dawson City in the days when the gold of its river beds flowed freely through its stores, towns and dance hall (21 min. 40 sec.); Fixed in Time : A Victorian Album: Glass-plate photographs from the prestigious Notman Gallery provide a remarkable visual record of the 19th-century garrison town of Halifax (19 min. 45 sec.); Doctor Woman: The life and Times of Dr. Elizabeth Bagshaw: As one of the first women to practice medicine in Canada, Dr. Bagshaw risked condemnation from the bench and the pulpit to pioneer birth control (28 min. 52 sec.); Ted Baryluk's Grocery: For over twenty years, Ted Baryluk's grocery store was a fixture in Winnipeg's multicultural north end. The film is a wistful rendering of a shopkeeper's relationship with his daughter and a fascinating portrait of a neighbourhood (10 min. 19 sec.); The Ungrateful Land: Roch Carrier Remembers Ste-Justine: This nostalgic view of rural Quebec is based on the reminiscences of novelist and playwright Roch Carrier (27 min. 10 sec.).
